Gardening Advice

I know this isn't strictly "housing" but I couldn't find another home for this question!
I'm trying to grow veg for the first time and between the slugs and the battering rain, the only thing I've managed so far are 4 tomatoes and a pepper.
I need help. Does anyone know someone who provides a "gardening agony aunt service"??

Re: Gardening Advice

There are many green-thumbed gardening agony aunts and uncles right here on EF:

I'm sure you'll get lots of useful info if you ask specific questions on this thread.

Happy gardening!

Re: Gardening Advice

MrsG buries plastic cups filled with beer next to her veggies. Excellent slug trap.
